At 22,000 square feet, the Missouri Civil War Museum is filled with over one thousand artifacts and several films throughout. Each gallery and exhibit tells a different story of Missouri in the American Civil War, from guerrillas and jayhawkers to life on the home front. The Museum also contains several galleries on the post-war era and the history of our home here at Jefferson Barracks.
In addition to the hundreds of artifacts on display, the Museum features several feature films for guests to watch. In partnership with Kansas City-based Wide Awake Films, the theater shows a 25-minute film on the war in Missouri, specifically the war on the Western Border and in Eastern Missouri.
